strange, strange alsa problem: sound is grainy/pixellated?
 
I installed linux on a computer at work (the front desk) to dualboot XP. Everything works wonderfully with the exception of the soundcard. it is a via motherboard with onboard sound.

The sound works, and I can get output. However, it sounds like it's at a really low bitrate. I don't know much about alsa and I can't find any decent documentation really so i'm a bit stumped. Also, I booted up knoppix and the sound worked great when I was testing hardware. So it's not a hardware issue.

By the way I'm currently using kernel 2.6.8 so alsa is compiled into the kernel.I'm not sure if that matters. I am thinking about going to 2.4 and seeing if that changes anything although I don't really want to do that.

I'm not sure what files to post here but if anyone's ever heard of this I would appreciate some help...

Oct 29 17:33:57 localhost kernel: via82xx: Assuming DXS channels with 48k fixed sample rate.
Oct 29 17:33:57 localhost kernel: Please try dxs_support=1 or dxs_support=4 option
Oct 29 17:33:57 localhost kernel: and report if it works on your machine.

some stuff that was in kern.log

i don't think this means anything though
